Received a call from this group at my home. They presented themselves as a local Maryland fundraising group raising money for the death benefit for police families. When questioned where which agency they were raising funds for, I was told "Local." When questioned further they could not give me the name of a local police agency & just said they were working out of Rockville, Maryland. (Upon further review, found out they are based in Texas but have a Post Office Box in Texas. Before I realized they were local I told them I would make a donation. They tried to get me to give my credit card number to them over the phone. Said to send me literature, I would review & send a check. Told them I was surprised they would even ask me for a payment over the phone when I had no idea to prove who they were. The person was nasty, told me they have thousands of people who give their credit card over the phone & that by me sending them a check, it would cost them more money to process. Well I have recieved my literature and am turning it in to the Maryland State Police for they are NOT ligitimate. DO NOT GIVE TO THIS ORGANIZATION ..... THEY ARE DISHONEST AND MAY EVEN BE A SCAM!!!!
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?
